I only said the 15-35% child support "evaporating into nothingness" could be a possible explanation for a declining work ethic.
I did not condone it (and went out of my way to say that). I do not encourage it to any guy.
It's stinkin' thinkin' but nonetheless, the OP is asking about "Thinking" and I am sticking to my story, that I have seen a lot of men not take that promotion, not take overtime, not take that side job.
Because I would just have to hand a lot of it over to my ex, is the thinking, and she'll just spend it on make-up and nails.
My attorney has noted he has seen it and has counseled me otherwise. I told him no need to; I'm on a 100%. I will pay my share and continue to try to earn more, no matter how the system penalizes me, if it does.
I'd rather be out scratching a living out, meeking an existence, being drown in child support (I am not, I think it's fair), than be back in a house being the family **** (and treated as such) cooking, cleaning, and doing laundry, and definitely not appreciated for such.
Never, EVER will I go back to a Feminist lifestyle. I'd rather live in a trailer and smoke Camels and drink Piels with Billy Bob Jimmy Boy.
I NEVER said you, Scanner. Tone doesn't come across well. I know you love your sons and you pay accordingly. Good Lord, you are not the person I was referring to. I was referring to the countless non-custodial parents who complain that they have to pay so much. It is chump change compared to what kids actually cost.
Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the Devil says: "Oh crap, she's up!"
